Supernatural thriller about a man infatuated with his wife’s niece. He contemplates murder – and one weekend his plan becomes reality with chilling results.
Boasting a brilliantly sinuous plot with a startling denouement, this supernatural thriller marked the directorial debut of Gordon Hessler, best-known for his work on the enormously influential series Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, and cult horror duo The Oblong Box and Scream and Scream Again.
Featuring an outstanding central performance from Gary Merrill a regular guest in both Hitchcock series Catacombs is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Money and power have brought Mrs Garth a charming husband. But despite her beauty and intelligence, she receives neither his loyalty nor his love; instead, he is infatuated with her young niece.
Mrs Garth domineering ways have also alienated her only secretary, Richard Corbett. In her safe she holds cheques once forged by Corbett and, while she is alive, he must remain within her service.
To gain their freedom, the two men contemplate murdering Mrs Garth. One weekend their plans become reality with chilling consequences.
